Official Sizing Thread
Well with the influx of "will this fit me?" posts I figured it may be a good idea to start a thread for those who don't know what will fit them.

So Post your height, weight, inseam, what size you take of what particular item..whatever you deem logical to include.

Im 6'3, 180lbs

Jersey: XL Redz Dimension jersey and XL Empire tournament jersey, the fit is great, semi baggy, long enough in the arms.

Gloves:Large gloves in general work for me

Pants: Large Empire react pants, i have a 32' wasit and 34' inseam and these pants are great, fully adjustable belt so it could potentially fit a wide range of waist sizes. The length is almost perfect, baggy but still well fitting.

This chart it generally accurate, but not everyone is the same exact size, so don't hesitate to email or phone companies/businesses to see what they recommend to someone of your size. Things do come in larger sizes, but you have to inquire about them.

5'10", 180lbs (not fat, about average) 32-33 waist...

Medium Dye Hybrids fit PERFECTLY to me. they'd fit nicely from a 30 to a 36, i believe.

and...... yeah, that's about it. heh.

5'10'' 32-33 waist, empire tourny pants XL work fine for me a large woulda been fine too but they were impossible to find, EXTREMELY adjustable pants would fit a size 30 to maybe a size 40 or so EXTREMELY adjustable. About a medium to large jersey. My mantis pack is one size fits all and works quite well, im a large in glove size.

Paintballer122 05-09-2005 05:59 PM

im 5'11 150 what would be good pants and a shirt for me

LAMANTEthePBguy 05-10-2005 02:07 PM

I'm about 6 ft, 180lbs and thin (distance runners don't keep much anything but muscle on them). I usually take a large shirt, and wear a Dye XXL jersey. Perfect fit.

I also wear Dye Slider Shorts. They are medium, and are a comfortable fit. A bit on the tight side. I take a 33-34 pant size.

I'm about 6'1" 150lbs and have a 34 waist. I wear a XL Empire 05 Grind jersey, large Empire 05 Grind Pants, and large Empire 05 Grind gloves. I want to get a fast pack but I don't know what size to get . What do you think?

papaintballer15 07-06-2005 07:35 PM

if u can try out the harness some place... med. might fit good. But if u can try out the L. I have a 3+4 action pack and mine is the L/XL size and it fits snug, with most of the belt left, and im 38waist... but M will probably suit you best.

5'7-5'7 1/2
227ish lbs

04 Protos i wear size XL, and if u adjust them to widest they go they slide down a little. With my C4's i have XL... but adjusting them out fully their snug, but yet i can have the velcro flaps placed perfectly flush and have them fit tight, but not to where they bother me.

C4 jersey XL, sleeve length is just about perfect, elbow pads line up good, sleeves are kinda baggy which is good, overall length is perfect, width is great.. bagginess, shoulder pads line up good.. (which im also wide, and broad shouldered)

TamaKid8918 07-12-2005 11:22 AM

Hey I was wondering what size of Proto jersey I should get. I'm about 5'10'' and 160 pounds. I'm thinkin' a large or x-large, I want it to fit loose. Thanks!

Avery_mac 07-22-2005 01:40 AM

ok does anybody know how to measure your knees for knee pads? B/c im getting empire pounder knee pads and i was trying to figure out which to get either the large or the medium but i dont know if they will fit me good or not? SOMEBODY HELP ME!!!!!!!:confused:

LAMANTEthePBguy 08-03-2005 08:01 PM

I could be mistaken on this, but I believe you measure the circumference of your leg right above your knee.

Kombatcom 08-04-2005 03:40 PM

aslo how do u measure for gloves and for the post above after i measure above my knee then how do i know which size i get then??
